What is there to do?

Kids, are you ready to go on the ultimate adventure back in time? A visit to the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point will take you there! This immersive educational experience features larger than life exhibits, with atmospheric sounds to really set the scene of a time gone by.

Yes, we are talking dinosaurs!

During your time at this fascinating Thanksgiving Point museum, kids can explore the tops of a Carboniferous forest, to the depths of a Jurassic ocean. The past comes to life with one of the world's LARGEST displays of mounted dinosaurs, with over 60 complete dinosaur skeletons, in addition to over 50 hands-on exhibits. 

Great fun to walk around for kids, and plenty of family friendly child proofing so if they can reach it, they can touch it!

Make sure you stop at the palaeontology lab to check out working unearthing REAL dinosaur bones! You might even want to pretend to be a palaeontologist yourself by casting your own fossil and drilling a real fish fossil.  Pretty cool!

This location also houses the Mammoth Screen 3D theatre, and combination tickets are available.
